BEST deli I have ever eaten at, HANDS DOWN.
Katz in New York City does not hold a candle to this place! They make EVERYTHING in house here -- from the bread, to the pastrami, to the herb mayo's and sauces to the pierogies!
I has the best pastrami sandwich ever here -- both the Szmidt and the Keege sandwiches are to die for. The rye bread is so soft and moist -- they make it in house! and the meat is done so perfectly it pretty much melts in your mouth.
Also -- the pierogies are PHENOMENAL! Really, the best I have ever had.
If you love a good deli -- this is your place. You can't find this kind of experience anywhere in Pittsburgh. The owner is a super nice guy who works hard and is always there. He will come out and make sure you have everything you need or just yell to you from behind the counter.
Can not say enough about this place! Just go! NOW!
Currently closed as we move to 957 Liberty Ave.
Look for us in early march!
